Delaine Eastin: 'Vote for me in spite of the fact that I'm a woman' 18 MIN, 16 SEC

In the weeks leading up to the June 5 primary, Press Play is speaking with the top candidates running for governor. We start with Delaine Eastin. She served two terms as State Superintendent of Public Instruction from 1995 to 2003. Before that, she was in the state assembly, chairing the education committee. She talks about her push for free college tuition, getting more funding for LAUSD, building more housing, and more.

How common is postpartum depression? 20 MIN, 42 SEC

The movie “Tully” has put a spotlight on the challenges of motherhood, especially after the birth of a child. Postpartum depression can be a devastating illness. It’s not always properly screened for, and treatment can still be hard to come by in many places.
